Change. Am I right? There are few things more stressful, more thought-consuming, more full of possibilities, good or bad.
Personally, I hate change. In fact, the only thing I hate more is indifference. Which means the second I am feeling unmotivated, disheartened or in any sort of funk, the first thing I do (after wallowing in it for a few hours…or days) is look for a change (is that the definition of irony? I don’t currently have 10,000 spoons and a need for a knife, so I guess no?). This is true for me no matter how big or small the situation is, I only can feel better about it when I take control, own my circumstances, and figure out what I can do to change them.
I made a pretty big change recently. I decided to leave the field I have been working in for years for a career in a world that is completely new and unknown. Am I terrified? Hell yes. But you know what scares me even more? Finding myself on a path I don’t want to be on with no conceivable way off (oh, and spiders. I really don’t like spiders).
So I am taking the leap and hoping that the landing is smooth. And if it’s not, I’ll brush myself off and run headfirst into the next one. Because while I may hate change, the only constant in this life is that it’s going to happen (like rain on your wedding day.), so you might as well embrace it.
